PRS Custom 22

McCarty Sunburst with Pattern Neck and 57/08’s #196561

Relaunched for 2013 and better than ever!

This guitar has the popular Pattern Neck profile and 57/08 pickups.

PRS say-
Reintroduced for 2013, the Custom 22 is a classic workhorse with all the tones you’ve come to expect from your PRS with a distinctive, warm midrange and clarity. The Custom 22 features your choice of a Pattern or Pattern Thin mahogany neck (with a rosewood neck option) and your choice of 57/08 or HFS treble and Vintage bass pickups wired for our redesigned 5-way blade switch, which offers a dual humbucker option for the first time (see switching positions below).

HFS treble and Vintage bass pickups were first offered in the 1990’s and helped to define the sound of the time by providing a balance of aggressive, musical, clear highs and strong midrange and bass. In 2008, we introduced 57/08 pickups, which were designed to capture a vintage ‘50’s humbucking tone. The Custom 22 is now offered with your choice of pickups so you can better tailor your tone.

Pickup Switching Positions:
Position One: Bridge humbucker
Position Two: Bridge humbucker with neck singlecoil, in parallel
Position Three: Bridge and neck humbuckers
Position Four: Neck singlecoil with bridge singlecoil, in parallel
Position Five: Neck humbucker
